Barwani





India officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second most populous country, and the most populous liberal democracy in the world. India is a union of twenty-eight states and seven federally-governed union territories. New Delhi is the capital of India.
 
Barwani is a town in southwestern Madhya Pradesh state of India. The town is situated near the left bank of the Narmada River, and is the administrative seat of Barwani District. It can be reached by road only. Bawangaja, the Jain pilgrimage place, is 8 kilometers from Barwani.
 
Barwani was formerly the capital of the eponymous princely state. The rulers, whose title was Rana, were Rajputs of the Sesodia clan, descended from the ruling dynasty of Udaipur. Although the state lost most of its territory during the Maratha invasion in the 17th century, it never became tributary to any Maratha chief. Under the British Raj, Barwani was a state of the Bhopawar agency, a division of the Central India Agency. The state lay in the Satpura Range south of the Narmada. It had an area of 3051 square kilometers and a population, in 1901, of 76,136. The inhabitants were predominantly Bhil tribals. The forests were under a British official. After India's independence in 1947, the Rana of Barwani acceded to India, and Barwani became part of the Nimar District of Madhya Bharat state. Madhya Bharat was merged into Madhya Pradesh on November 1, 1956.
 
Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Barwani enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
